Founded in 2007, The Sustany Foundation is dedicated to advancing sustainability initiatives in the Tampa Bay region and has served as the leading resource for the sustainable business community for over a decade. The Sustainable Business Awards are The Sustany Foundation’s hallmark event and honor companies and organizations in the Tampa Bay area that embrace the three pillars of the triple bottom line; people (social impact), planet (environmental impact) and profit (economic impact and governance).
Criteria for each pillar is as follows:
- People (Social Impact): Is a good citizen of Tampa Bay and the world through fair and beneficial business practices for employees, community and supply chain
- Planet (Environmental Impact): Contributes to the environmental health of Tampa Bay through sustainable environmental practices
- Profit (Economic Impact & Governance): Committed to good governance. Provides a positive economic impact in the Tampa Bay community while aligning sustainability values throughout the organization
Each January, the public is invited to nominate local businesses and organizations that are leading the way in sustainable practices. “This is the second year we received over 100 nominations from the open call,” said Andrea Cheney, President of the Sustany Foundation, “we are thrilled to see so many companies in the Tampa Bay area integrating sustainability into their operations.”
Winners will be announced live on September 16th at the 12th Annual Sustainable Business Awards Green Carpet Gala at the historic Tampa Theatre. The event is open to the public and draws a packed house of sustainability professionals, business leaders, government officials, academia, non-profits, and like-minded community organizations and individuals. Since 2008, more than 120 businesses have received the Sustainable Business Award for their commitment to social responsibility and environmental stewardship. We hope to be among them this September!
